    And this showing log time to the second is screwing with me...when doing my PTI, I try to show enough time to keep the log department from having an hissy fit...but I keep looking at the seconds on the time I changed status, and comparing it to the clock at the top of the screen that doesn't display seconds. Plus, my app that keeps track of my hours doesn't calculate to the second, so now I have to do the rounding, hoping it matches close enough. Plus now I am fixing 5 or 6 'on duty' glitches per day that are only a few seconds long while I am waiting on this slow arse POS to get to the screen where I can go off duty after pulling into a parking lot or rest area.

    How much has the construction project at the 70/65 jct in Indy screwed up traffic?

    I could see you getting a call, to get moving, on to your next job because you’re fired.

    Easy Frank. The Snackboss robot mega fan club will scorn you for picking on their leader. He knows what he needs to do. He’s talked about going to FCC. All you hear on that thread is sunshine but once he get’s there we’ll find out the real scoop on that outfit.

    I sometimes think it's more the terminal doing the micromanage game. I don't have many of the issues that snackbar seems to have. I don't get the excessive messages he's always complaining about or all of the issues with peoplenet lagging or freezing. I might just be lucky, not sure. I'm based out of the Lincoln terminal, so you would think they would be the king of micromanagement, but I rarely talk to anyone or get messages from anyone at my terminal. Probably haven't talked to Derek more than a couple dozen times in the 12 years I've been based out of there. I did have some of the truck issues a couple trucks ago, but my last 2 trucks have been nearly flawless, as much as they can be. My last truck had just over 500k miles, and was only in a shop one time for a starter, other than that, only services. This one I just got to 74k, getting b service done tonight. I've got a great asset manager that keeps me moving too, so that makes things easier. I try not to let things get me to riled up, as all that ever does is make you mad and you're still in the same situation. I just do my job and they leave me alone to do that.

    It's odd, I don't tend to have many of the issues that my coworkers run into either. It's about understanding the way your company works and WHY it works that way. You ignore the stupidity that doesn't impact you and cash your check.

    The only thing I hear from Deland is "you're idle time is too high", "the Deland fleet had xxx number of preventables" (usually once a month), or the Deland fleet isn't complying with the fuel solution often enough (haven't heard that one for a while)...other than that, it's all messages from corporate, and from management above my A/M's pay grade....and right now, on my daily log, I have 3 on duty errors I have to fix that are where the system logged 14 seconds and 25 seconds back to back, and one for 1 min 16 sec. All from me stopping, and waiting to log off duty. Plus I have 3 data diagnostic events, one when I wasn't even in the truck, I topped off the reefer and went in to pee and wash my hands. Came out and the little red triangle was there for no reason...key was off and in my pocket, and the PN was on the whole time.

    Tighten up

    This data was as of the 13th and I had a decent week this week. so I have more than exceeded the 109k for a raise, but considering before the May raise, I was on pace for 135k miles.
